Pedestrian Struck By A Car on I-95 Near Exit 77 Resulting in Death
The stretch of I-95 southbound prior to exit 77, MD-24 was brought to a standstill yesterday evening, as all lanes were closed due to a tragic pedestrian accident. A disabled Volvo tractor trailer with hazard lights illuminated stood parked on the shoulder when another vehicle veered towards it, hitting the pedestrian identified as Rajwinder Singh, 22, who was outside his truck at the time. Singh was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the other vehicle, 19-year-old Abbas Zaheer, was involved in the crash. Troopers responded to reports of the accident at around 6 p.m., effectively closing down an already busy stretch of highway. Officials report that the victim, Singh, was outside of his vehicle when the accident occurred. It’s unclear why the driver, Zaheer, left the third lane and collided with Singh. Fortunately, all lanes on the highway are now open.
